We booked a table for 8 on a wet Friday afternoon. The boat going across can only take 12 passengers and despite booking our group was split as we were in a queue with others who were returning to the island. Had we got in the queue earlier this wouldn't be a problem but we had mistakenly thought the boat... More

It's a bit of a trek, via a small boat, to get to this place and then to have the food be just average isn't worth it. When I made the reservation for 12pm the lady took it and then when I asked when the boat left the Oban dock to come over she told me it left every 10... More

We have been in this restaurant few times in last few years while going past Oban and had a lovely experience. This year however experience was completely different. To start off, few of the meals we were after were not available which is understandable since we were late in the evening and waitress was apologetic, while so called manager not... More

Party of eight visited on Friday and had a great time. Entertained by Paris and Harris (Karen) during the the entire visit of a couple of hours, I don't know what some people are looking for on a wee island in the Atlantic, the Ritz, marble pavements, hanging garden of Babylon, chamber music and chefs with French names I can't...

We booked this on the back of a friend's experience. Had to change our intended booking time as the last ferry for restaurant customers leaves earlier than the last ferry - why? The track to the place, though not very obvious, was wet soggy grass although by going around some outbuildings it was possible to access it by a gravel... More

I live in Oban and have eaten many times over the years at The Waypoint Grill. We have never been disappointed with the food until now. Our party of 8 Had a starter and a main course there on 26th of May. Whoever The Oban Marina has taken on as chief this year dose not have a clue how to... More

Disappointed in quality and choice when visited in May 2014. Went elsewhere in Oban after that. In previous years it was outstandingly good for choice, freshness and quality. Apparently there had been a change of ownership.

We visited here whilst passing through Oban. We enjoyed the boat ride over to Kerrera and with the discount from the restaurant it only cost us £2 each return. We had a lovely table looking out over the marina and the grill is basic but charming. The staff were lovely and very helpful and the Mussels with cream and tarragon... More
